An outdoor football tailgate party was the opening event at the CCH User Conference in Orlando on Sunday evening.

The conference attracted over 1,000 attendees, and many of them spread across the courtyard at the Grande Lakes Orlando hotel complex, which encompasses a JW Marriott and a Ritz Carlton. With a DJ blasting rock tunes from a 4x4 truck and an enormous TV screen showing coverage of Sunday night football, the reception was a lively affair.

CCH is planning to continue the football theme later in the conference with a keynote address by legendary Notre Dame football coach and now ESPN analyst Lou Holtz. We’ll try to give you the play-by-play on the conference right here.
